#196498 After sunset, Lake Ägeri

Posted by fermin on 25 June 2015 - 06:33 PM



Took a series of pictures tonight just around or shortly after sunset. This is one of them:




Nikon D810, 14-24 @14mm, 1 sec, f/14, ISO 64

#194991 Long exposure @ Lake of Zug, Switzerland

This picture is actually a composite of 8 pictures. I took them all with the 14-24/2.8 Nikkor and a 3.0 grade ND filter. The exposure times vary from 8 seconds up to a minute. I did some minor cheat optimizations in Lightroom, though.

You're right! We're hopelessly outnumbered here on the Planet...  :lol:


Is Fermin on an extended vacation or has he moved onward in the galaxy?




No worries, I'm back. Even posted a few pictures, and I'm about to post another one in a few seconds.

#194472 I'm back!

Hello group
I have a few crazy weeks behind me, some of the craziness good (business is really, really good), some of it not so good. Anyway, here I am, back and firing on all lenses, so to speak.
I'm currently experimenting with long exposures, so here we go:
D810, Nikon 14-24 @14mm, f/16, ISO 100, 64 sec
D810, Nikon 14-24 @14mm, f/16, ISO 100, 7.1 sec

Hi everybody


Sorry for my absence, I had (and still have, in fact) a ton of work to do. Any way, this evening I had both camera and tripod with me and was able to take this picture:

First picture taken against the sun, glad it worked (THANK YOU, NIKON :wub: )

... and just after sunset:


#188709 Tribute to a Jordanian pilot named Moaz al-Kasasbeh

Posted by fermin on 11 February 2015 - 05:49 AM

My opinion is not really formed by the (British) media - I'm more of the opinion that the IS is a huge problem that needs a permanent solution. And unfortunately that solution will probably mean that we need to apply more extreme measures.


On the other hand one of the biggest problems is the world's dependance on oil. If it wasn't for that, do you really believe the US and their allies would have intervened when Iraq invaded Kuwait? As soon as the world is not as dependent on oil anymore or if we can cover the world's oil needs out of non-islamic states that will be the end of this kind of problems. They want to go back to the middle ages? By all means, let them. Close off the borders, abort any diplomatic relations and let them ride off in the sunset on their camels for all that I care. My current car uses Diesel - bet you my next car in about 3 years will be a Tesla or something similar. I almost got one a year ago, but there weren't enough recharge stations in Switzerland at the time. This will probably change in the near future... And of course that's not enough, I will still cause oil to be used, but maybe one day we, as in "the civilized world", will be able to tell Saudi Arabia and similar countries to just keep their oil and see if they can drink it.


Sorry about my rant, I'll get back to photography now. Much better for my nerves ... :-)

One solution instead of killing IS prisoners (since that would make them martyrs) is to hook them up to an IV with blood from a Christian or Jew, lock them up in a cell and throw away the key.

#188211 Crocodile stone?

The croc was probably just checking on its Swiss bank account ... :blink:

#188208 Crocodile stone?

I only noticed when I looked at the picture in LR:



Nikon D810, 24-70/2.8 @55m, 0.8s, f/20, ISO 80

#188207 Tribute to a Jordanian pilot named Moaz al-Kasasbeh

Posted by fermin on 03 February 2015 - 05:45 PM

I thought the Jordanian Government said they would execute all IS prisoners if harm came to the pilot? I'm usually not bloodthirsty, but I think some ropes and a few trees need to be found ...
